Upgrade HDD model to SSD
I have the Mid 2011 Server model mac mini (Quad-core i7-2635QM) however I need to connect 3 monitors so I have picked up a mid level Mac Mini 2014 model with the HDD as it has 2 thunderbolt ports and a HDMI.
I'm looking to upgrade to an SSD - what's the best route? A 2.5" SSD drive using SATA in direct replacement of the existing HDD which I have done in the 2011 model or should I look at finding an SSD for the second apple proprietary slot? I understand whilst possible this is a bit more involved due to needing the cable and special apple SSD. Is there a noticeable difference in real world performance over the 2 options?
Drive capacity isn't an issue as nothing is really stored on the device.
Any help would really be appreciated.
Is this a good question?
